Get Involved with the College

We encourage all traditional Chinese medicine practitioners and acupuncturists in Ontario to get involved with the College, and the self-regulation of the profession. The College recognizes that our professional members’ perspective and expertise are invaluable and necessary in fulfilling our mandate of regulating the profession in the public interest.

Consider getting involved—these are excellent opportunities for professional members to help contribute to the regulation of the TCM profession in Ontario, and to protect the public.
